Ex cop car. Cop's used them as they do high k's, drive well and have plenty of poke. And you can say what you like about the cops but they service their vehicles.

First registered in 2003 but was told when I bought it it is the '04 model.

Remote locking
Good rubber, 80%
Trip computer.
Brand new warrent

Overall car drives very nicely. Starts first time every time and uses no oil or water. Has had regular oil changes at 10k. Very nice through the gears and can go when you stomp on it. Overall condition pretty good for a 10 year old car with a few blemishes you would expect. LPG is about $4500 to fit nowdays and this was factory fitted so none of the problems you sometimes get with starting. Seamless changeover.
You might notice it sits a little low at the back. I had strengthened springs fitted as I towed a good size boat (not far and not often enough), and it's a great tow wagon. Unfortunately need a 4x4 to get out of a slippery boat race so have upgraded. On for a buck so the market will decide the price.

Here are the known faults:
*There is a better than average diff whine. At first I thought it was the missus in the passenger seat but one day she was home mowing the lawns and the noise was still there. In the car I mean, not on the lawn. Anyway, had it looked at and supposedly good for plenty of k's but worth a mention.
*The "check engine" alarm comes up occasionaly when running on LPG. Had it checked and it is a faulty exhaust sensor (none of that in the mighty HQ). $600 to replace so didn't bother. Resets all the time and never comes up on petrol.
*The stereo works well but the wheel buttons are random and pretty much select whatever option they like. Controls on the unit work sweet.
*The rear plastic trim is missing as per the photo. No doubt available from a wrecker.
*LPG fuel gauge does not work, I think the sender is buggered. I go off the trip meter anyway so don't bother with it. About 600km/tank.

Feel free to bid blind but any inspection/test drive welcome.
